I was staying at a motel next door, which only offered a continental breakfast, so thought I'd check out the Beachside Bistro for a full menu. I was well satisfied with the breakfast selection, and prices, and the attention served to me. A small restaurant, with a beach theme. A nice, quiet place with an view overlooking the ocean, and...

Looking to try something different on our most recent return to the OBX, headed over to the Sea Ranch motel to give it a try. The place is on the ocean side of the motel, but don't expect a view at night. They also had a couple of dudes strumming and singing over in the corner. I could have done... More

I have written reviews about the Beachside Bistro and its associated hotel, Sea Ranch Resort on a half dozen occasions. However, the Bistro recently hired a new Executive Chef, Sam Larson, and last evening, my wife and I had an opportunity to return to the Bistro during one of our many trips to Sea Ranch, and it was a splendid...

Ate breakfast here several times, lunch once, and evening drinks with entertainment once. Really cute nautical theme and looks out over the ocean. Great food, great service, decent prices. Can't really ask for more!

This time, we returned to celebrate the New Year 2016 by taking advantage of their special that included an Oceanfront room, breakfast for each day at close-by Jolly Roger Restaurant, a charming place and one of our favorites as well as a New Year's Eve...

We attended an all you can eat oyster roast which included steamed shrimp & pulled barbecue plus lots of sides. It was very reasonably priced and was absolutely delicious! About the best meal we've ever had on the OBX! The waitresses are very friendly and very attentive. Definitely a repeat venue.

We were looking for a nice place to eat after an afternoon movie. Thanks to Trip Advisor, we thought we'd try the Beachside Bistro. We're so glad that we did! We found friendly service, a diverse menu to choose from & evening specials. Make sure to save room for the best Key Lime Pie on the beach! YUM! We'll be... More
